In 2019…

  •  I tried new sports; boxing, kickboxing and twerking. The last one was a flop, obviously.
    [Go on, exceed yourself]
  •  I flew alone and had the best holiday with my three sisters. How lucky am I to have sisters as my best friends?
  • I ran a half marathon (or the distance) with my sisters – singing ‘We are the Champions’ is what got us through the final metres.

  • I Embraced my natural curls, even though it didn’t make me a curl goddess like some of the amazing curl gurus I follow on Instagram. It did however result in me and my blog being mentioned in a Finnish lifestyle magazine! [Naturally curly and wavy hair 101 – Curly hair routine]
  • I was more comfortable in my body than I have ever been – and I talked about that here too and got very positive feedback and encouragement from you (thank you!). [Me too & My body is written with scars]scars on my body stretch marks positivity
  • I had a lovely summer. Then again, aren’t summers always lovely? Full of endless sunlight, adventures and gin & tonics.
  • I moved to a new apartment, that instantly felt like home. I still can’t believe I get to live in a pretty much my dream home.

  • I found new creative outlet and hobby: painting. I want to do that more in 2020 too.
  • I improved a lot with my blog. I hit over 30 000 visitors a month in November! My ambitions with this blog are huge. I want this place to be unique, helpful, fun, interesting and everything that I am. I guess I’m finally feeling a little proud of this project (and saying that out loud is more than fine).

What else? Fall and the end of the year has been quite the roller coaster. I’m consciously trying to learn to really really enjoy the littlest things and appreciate everything I have. Because I have the world. I have the love of my life, I have big family, I have my close friends and I’ve also got to know to some pretty amazing people through my work. I have roof over my head and I’m healthy. I can run and I can write. I have cloudy days where my anxiety and depression want to lift their head up, but I’m strong.

Thank you, universe, or whatever it is keeping my feet on the ground.

I’m ready to dance 2019 away – and going into new adventures in 2020.

From the bottom of my heart

I don’t love Christmas, because the day was always perfect and lovely in my life. Though for the most part, it was. I know Christmas is a tough holiday for many and it would be for me too, if I didn’t make it my own.

I guess I love Christmas, because of my routines. I have a timetable for the whole day, yet it feels like the most day off than any other day in the year. It always feels like a special day – a day where I’m allowed to just be. This week is dedicated to spending a lot of time in my red pyjamas, eating a lot of chocolate, watching a ton of movies and seeing my friends and family. I know it’s gonna sound super cheesy, but I feel the Christmas spirit. Whatever that is. Love? I guess. I’m already feeling it.

So from the bottom of my heart, I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas.

I hope you get to spend it however you wish.

P.S. You’ll find a tutorial to this black smokey eye on my Instagram Highlights.
